Overall score: 3.5 out of 5
What our testers say…
MFM mum Caroline Carpenter
- A very light, non-scented cream. It was so light that I wasn’t sure if I should use more. It is so easy to rub on your skin, as it is quite thin. I am used to slightly heavier creams, especially since becoming pregnant, as I was so paranoid about stretch marks.
- Not keen on was the scent, it smelt a little odd.
- I had no fear of this cream marking my clothes or having an overpowering any perfume I was wearing.
- Caroline’s score: 3.5
MFM mum Neri Sizer
- It promises to “stimulate the production of collagen” by covering the scar or stretch mark in a thin, invisible film of silicone, but didn’t work on my existing stretch marks, but after using it for over three months and can see very little difference.
- I found that the Remescar didn’t have a nice smell, it was too slight for me, I like to smell of a body lotion.
- As it is so light I didn’t find it moisturising qualities up to scratch and left me feeling like I hadn’t applied any cream at all.
- Neri’s score: 2.5
MFM mum Sandra Bolla
- You might not get as much product with Ramescar as other stretch mark creams and oils, but you only need to use it sparingly, so a little goes a ling way – sorry for the cliché there. I had to fight the urge to saturate my stomach with it, but after using it I noticed my skin felt smooth and really soft.
- And if you’re sensitive to smells, which is very likely when you’re pregnant, this is the cream for you as it’s delicate and not overpowering.
- Sandra’s score: 4 out of 5
What to watch out for
Firstly, it’s not cheap and while it may promise protection from stretch marks and reduce scarring it can be hit and miss.
